Tomorrow morning you’re going to see a lot of headlines across your favorite tech blogs that will sound a little… extra-ordinary. Small companies seemingly acquiring big companies. Well-known individuals joining startups or other odd-fit engagements. They will be, for the most part, well written. And to a few dozen people (specifically: the writer, the writer’s best friends, and the named individuals in the blog post), fairly funny. To everyone else? Smirk-worthy, at best. Why? April Fool’s - a fun day to pull pranks. That is, if you are either extremely clever and funny, or you are an 8-year-old. And I hate to say it (not really), but this basically rules out just about the entire techie blogosphere.
That’s pretty much it for my thoughts on the subject. You’ve been warned.
JT the Curmudgeon, out.
